Just a fyi for anyone building a Herculien,

Just a fyi for anyone building a Herculien, trimcraftaviationrc has added some new items since the BOM was last updated. I think the following are are equivalent to the mcmaster parts, but cheaper, at least if you’re looking at stainless steel versions. When I ordered parts for my Eustathios, I pointed out the printer BOMs and he was nice enough to add a few more items to his inventory.

3mm oversized flat washer (Din 9021) - http://www.trimcraftaviationrc.com/index.php?_a=product&product_id=458

5mm oversized flat washer (DIN 9021) - http://www.trimcraftaviationrc.com/index.php?_a=product&product_id=459

5mm x 10mm button head screw - http://www.trimcraftaviationrc.com/index.php?_a=product&product_id=456

5mm x 12mm SST socket head cap screw - http://www.trimcraftaviationrc.com/index.php?_a=product&product_id=451

5mm wing nut (DIN 315) - http://www.trimcraftaviationrc.com/index.php?_a=product&product_id=455

Awesome. Those guys are great.

Yeah, I was so happy to find out about them, thanks! Between the ridiculously low prices and $3 shipping, they’re great for someone who has an irrational desire to replace all the hardware with stainless versions. I think I’ve placed 4 orders and thought I had all the M3, M4, and M5 screws I could possibly want, but it looks like I already need more.
